Rahul, Rohit give India a flying startDecember 22, 2017 19:24
India 43-0 (5 ovs) vs SL | Scorecard
Rahul decides to take a few risks and put some pressure on Chameera. He lofts the first ball back over the bowler's head but without proper timing for just a couple of runs.
He is unable to turn the strike off the next two balls before he makes room and lofts it over mid-off for a six.
Rahul looks to repeat the shot off the next delivery but gets an inside edge.
Nuwan Pradeep comes into the attack in place of Mathews, who bowled a steady first spell of two overs.
He starts with a slower ball as Rohit uses the pull shot again to hit it over midwicket for a six.
He then takes a single before Rahul spots the slower ball early and glances Pradeep fine on the leg side for a four.
The next ball is pitched up and Rahul plays a cracking lofted shot straight back over the bowler's head for a six.
Pradeep goes for 17 in his first over as India race to 43 for nos loss in five overs, with Rahul hitting 26 from 19 balls and Rohit scoring 17 from 11 balls.
